  •  Where did I say that? (0+ / 0-)

    Again, the next time you attempt an honest argument will be the first time...

    You just can't help yourself can you?It's who you are… It's what you do… day in and day out…

    And for what? Guns… And the love of same… That's just pathetic…

      I also write reclisted diaries and interact across several subjects; you should try that.

      And here's where you said it:

      'What was suggested is that "pro-gun folks" would make bullshit, disingenuous arguments (like this one) to distract from the subject…'

      And if course, said it in such a polite, adult way. See you in the next RKBA diary, in which I will remind you of all the complaints you mad me here.

          but not unexpected.

          Portion for other users: see how many diaries a kossack wrote have the 'recommended' tag for a good number.

          Anything else you want to show your ass on, TS?

          •  You've got a whole boatload of clunkers too... (0+ / 0-)

            I have rec listed diaries as well… What exactly does that prove?

            Not surprising you'd attempt a change of subject though...

            If "recommended status" is the be-all and end-all, you should be bowing down to brooklynbadboy then, shouldn't you?

            From here you appear to be nothing more than a gun troll… Nothing more nothing less…

            •  Ah, so you were wrong. (0+ / 0-)

              It simply means that 1. You lied and 2. You're interested in personal attacks instead of debate and 3. You endorse calling out other kossacks and accuse others of trolling when they object to it.

              I think that about settles it.

                more than one... I also fail to see what that has to do with your intentional misinterpretation of the call out comment you've taken such great umbrage to...

                You seem to be badgering me now though... I suggest you cease that immediately...

                Thanks...

        I am reading this thread again, and it's clear that you don't want the conversation, so you're attempting to derail it.

      There was a call out of pro-gun Kossacks in the OP. Stop pretending that it isn't there:

      It is one of the favorite arguments of the pro gun folks here that rather than impose gun safety measures, there needs to be more spent on identifying people with mental health issues.
      Having read the attached article, I'd like to point out that this man and his activities were already well known to law enforcement, so our alleged avocation of this approach proved prescient in this case.
      •  I'm one of the pro gun folks here (0+ / 0-)

        and it's not my argument.

        3 possibilities:

        1. If you're not a "pro gun folk here" then it's not calling you out.

        2. If it's not your argument, then it's not a call out for your pro gun stance either.

        3. If you are both a pro gun folk and that IS your argument, then it's an invitation to defend your stance.

        Either way, IF your argument has merits then IT will stand up to scrutiny and if you are reasonable and persistent, you can win people over.

        Wow, it's just really frightening to realize that so many über sensitive people are out there packing heat...

          See my use of the word alleged.

          And yes, it was clearly addressed to pro-RKBA users on this website. Which is what the author is trying very hard, and very unconvincingly, to weasel out of.

          Sensitivity to the author's hostility, dishonesty and lack of courage to own up to either is irrelevant.

            Have RKBA members or have they not consistently been more inclined to advocate stronger mental health measures over stronger gun control laws?

            Yes or no?

            •  No, they have not. (0+ / 0-)

              In fact, many of us express uneasiness with the unintended consequences of the former: Namely those requiring mental health care may avoid it to avoid losing their rights and/or privacy.

              Now, something I know several of us have advocated is increased funding for mental health care facilities at the federal level (undoing the damage of Reagan,) but this does not seem to be what you're suggesting, nor does it pair with the straw man set up in the diary.

              •  Actually, that's exactly what the diarist said... (1+ / 0-)
                Recommended by:
                LilithGardener

                that more often than not, RKBA members steer the discussion away from gun control on ANY level and towards increasing funding for mental health care on the federal level...

                Which is precisely what the diarist wrote...

                Thanks for an honest answer...

                You guys are way too sensitive... "called out"... lol... Jesus... what are we, in Middle School?

                  and I didn't take offense, because I never make the argument that the diarist specifically called attention to.

                  As they say, if the glass slipper fits Neo, then Neo is probably Cindarella.
